First things first I must apologize for not being a dutiful blogger i found out i was pregnant with our third child (total suprise) all the while getting my oldest ready to start school in august. Are all parent's this nervous when sending their child to school for the first time? On a happy note we find out if we are to be blessed with a girl or boy May 2nd.
Morning noon and night sickness(why they only say morning sickness is beyond me) has finally settled to a more manageable level so it's back to crafting!
For you to check out, i have a monkey made from the butterick care bear cousin's pattern or more specific the Playful heart monkey and while i stuck close to the pattern because of my fabric choice(which is stretchy unlike the fur fabrics used for their monkey) i improvised to suit. This dude will be saved for our newest family member be it dude or dudette.
I like how the monkey turned out but i think i will also probably have another go with a different fabric that isn't fleece(though this dude is totally huggable!)
